OnePlus 5 now in limited edition Soft Gold colour

For the subdued tone of natural gold with a silky-smooth texture, OnePlus took an average of 180 days to create and perfect the coating. The company in a community page, explains the whole process gone behind building this elegant colour. “Getting a perfectly even and light colour starts with running premium aluminum alloy through a diamond cutter. The surface is then sandblasted and polished with intense precision. Each second matters in this process or the anodized colour takes on a different shade. It’s an extensive process, but the result is worth it – a stunning matte finish is pleasing to see and feel“.
